Giveaway: The Runaway Bridegroom by Sundari Venkatraman ( 14 Feb -28 Feb)

Today is Valentine's Day, the day of love and how it be complete without celebrating what we at Reviews & Musings love the most - books! So here on this occassion we are here participating in a wonderful Blog Hop -Giveaway hosted by Book R3vi3ws.

When we talk about romance as a genre there are many names that come to our mind the first being Nicholas Sparks. I started reading romance through Mills & Books like a typical teenager and gradually fell in love with love in those books. Today as the whole world celebrates love, Reviews & Musings brings to you a wonderful book written by Sundari Venkatraman who managed to make me nostalgic by taking me back in my teenage with this book of hers.

~ Presenting ~
The Runaway Bridegroom By Sundari Venkatraman

 ~ Blurb

Chanda Maheshwari’s family is shaken when her thirteen-year-old bridegroom Veerendra runs away immediately after the wedding. The eight-year-old child doesn’t even understand the impact on her life. Unable to face their neighbours and friends, the Maheshwaris move from their village to Jaipur and begin a new life in the city.

Fourteen years later, Chanda is studying in a Delhi College. She takes up a temporary job at RS Software Pvt. Ltd. and falls head-over-heels for the boss of the operation. But what about Ranveer Singh? Is he interested in her?

Ranveer’s secretary Shikha is desperate to make him fall for her. All she wants is life-long security with a rich man. But it’s nerd Abhimanyu who keeps getting in the way. Abhi is Ranveer’s second-in-command and Shikha isn’t keen on him as she’s eyeing the main chance.

When Ranveer appears to show interest in Chanda, she’s faced with a new problem. Astrologer Vidyasagar insists that she would get back with her husband Veerendra. Does anyone want to know what she wants?

Chanda feels torn between the man she has fallen for and the family values that have been instilled in her. Will she ever find happiness?
